Sabrina Baez ENG 481 9/7/2011 Reading Notes – Stock Brian Stock’s views on Ethics through Literature Brian Stock starts off his article by saying that in modern times it is not believed that ethics can be taught through literature and the humanities. He explains that because of this line of thinking people have neglected to put in account the role that History plays in ethics. He goes on to say that some controversial historical events have almost completely been ignored because of the moral issues concerned. According to Stock this issue has been around for a long time, he focuses on the Greco – Roman period. Knowledge was acquired through speech and writings in that period and most of the time these were taught orally. Things changed with the invention of paper presses and book creation. People started reading more and becoming more literate, and that’s when the doubt in teaching ethics through literature started. People stopped being concerned with the main solution to problems in ethics, politics, religion, and economics and focused more on the many different issues within these categories since there was no longer a unity between them. This widespread literary interest was of concern for many non – Western societies. This method of teaching caused disunion and threatened their “fragile oral traditions”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
